"Gretsch Blackhawk padset in pristine condition! Almost like new. Including Digiplay ED 505-S controller + 4 Yamaha PCY 80 cymbal pads with Alesis DM5 module.

Extremely rare HEXAGON shaped GRETSCH 'BLACKHAWK' 5-piece electronic drum trigger kit with Digiplay ED505-S, which is similar to Gretsch ED-700, only differently branded (see stickers on BD and module digiplay)

The Piezo triggers are all very responsive and test strong with SIMMONS SDSV and modern Roland sound modules. These pads have a very soft and quiet feel due to their cushioned playing surface. The shells are made from wood just like the original prototype SIMMONS/MUSICAID pads! Gloss Black finish on each pad is in good condition, with minor scrapes and scuffing to mention. Secure XLR outputs on all pads. As you know this is a very rare set, especially in this condition. All pads are in great condition, one has two really small marks on it (see pic). All tested and working, can provide video. Including original XLR cables.

One tom-mount is original, rest is new hardware."
